Sample Answer

Do you agree that it’s important for people of different ages to do leisure activities together?

Um … well … I think in some cases it could be important for people of different ages to do leisure activities together. For example, parents or even grandparents can enjoy doing fun things with their children or grandchildren, like, you know, things that don’t require a lot of physical ability such as playing games, reading or cooking. I guess that sometimes it is very important for older people to do things with younger ones, especially more difficult skills that need to be taught like … I don’t know … martial arts or playing a musical instrument.

I am really grateful for your amazing help, especially in the speaking test. My results were 7.5 in speaking and 6.5 in reading, writing and listening. Overall, band 7!!!

It was great doing mock speaking tests with Mr. Nigel Haines via skype. Got valuable tips, feedback. He also gave various points that could have been spoken on a particular topic. I was a little anxious about clearing my IELTS speaking test, because I was not habituated to speaking English. So I subsribed to IELTS Speaking Plus. My practice with Mr. Haines helped me a lot. I required no band score less than 6 & an overall band score of 6.5. I could score 6.5 in speaking & got an overall band score of 8. I'm grateful to iPass IELTS for helping me in clearing the speaking test.
